I don't wanna burst anyone's bubble but having actually been to Europe they have a lot of the same problems America does.

Like moving to Norway ain't gonna solve 99% of your problems and will create a billion more lmao

Things that exist in Europe in just as great of numbers as the US:

* Pro-lifers
* Religious people
* People who hate trans people
* People who think queer people should just be quiet
* People who really believe giving up freedom can make them safer
* CCTV (actually, more)
* Doctors who gatekeep the fuck out of everything
* Medical insurance (yes, really!)
* Shitty infrastructure (though their trains are better, a lot of public transit is busses now...)
* Poor people


@Elizafox re: gatekeepy doctors: at least there's informed consent HRT at all in America

@LunaDragofelis Yeah a lot of people don't realise that HRT is heavily gatekept there

And in many countries mandatory surgery is required before they'll change your gender marker
